National parks are free tomorrow, the 24th, for National Public Lands Day! Be sure to visit a park or volunteer:

On Saturday, September 24, an estimated 170,000 people across America will spend time helping their favorite parks and open spaces by volunteering through National Public Lands Day and National Estuary Day. Take pride in some of the nation’s most beautiful and important places by taking part in group projects that really make a difference, like removing invasive plants, maintaining trails, planting trees, and picking up trash. As a bonus, all national parks will waive their entrance fees, so you can get in for free!
